Some would say Purim is a Jewish holiday about a queen in Persia who saved the Jews of her kingdom from a violently egotistical prime minister. Others would say Purim is a holiday about the masks people wear and how to get behind them. We say, its one of our favorite holidays well worth celebrating in the traditional ways…
With music, dancing, and drinking.
Join JDub, Matisyahu, and Hazon for a Purim night on the lower east side. In the spirit of turning things on their head, we've got an unbelievable bill of things Jewish and Not-So with Hasidic Reggae Superstar Matisyahu, hip hop band Automato and Londonian-Bostonian MC Kabir.

MORE ABOUT CHANA ROTHMAN:
Chana's music, using two languages and ancient texts to address social ills and joys of today, brings a universal appeal. The message is unity through music. Two years as a Head Songleader in Reform Judaism's teen leadership summer camps helped Chana develop a passion for music as a tool to bring communities together.
RICHARD ANTONE of ELMORE MAGAZINE writes: "Rothman's music bubbles with a conscious vibe that's capable of bringing people together. She is adept at using religious imagery and bilingual lyrics as a bridge rather than a wedge."
Chana's debut album, "We Can Rise," (Oyhoo Records) produced by C Lanzbom, was voted "Best Album of 2007" by jewschool.com and she was featured in "Top 5 Women Who Rock" by American Jewish Life and Lilith Magazine. Chana was also featured in the documentary film "Jewish Music: More Than Just Klezmer" produced by Brooklyn College Media Department.
NEW YORK TIMES says of Chana Rothman:"Worth Checking Out"
